Counselling

The FCSS Counselling Program is an affordable, professional service designed to address short-term counselling needs and focuses on resolving client concerns. Our counsellors use solution focused, cognitive behavioural approaches to assist clients in meeting their counselling goals.

Who is it for?

It can often be helpful in life's problems to access outside support. This can make the difference between resolving a problem quickly and going through a long period of struggle.

Support is provided for a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, loss, marital and relationship issues, stress, family conflict, parenting challenges, self-esteem and others.

All FCSS counselling services are confidential and provided on a sliding fees schedule.
